First trailer for Peter Jackson's The Lovely Bones


8th August 2009

The trailer for The Lovely Bones, Peter Jackson's adaptation of the Alice Sebold best-seller, has landed online in heavenly HD.

YouTube have debuted the trailer but are being spoilsports and disabling embedding, so you'll have to skip on over there to see it.

I'll confess, I haven't read The Lovely Bones (I'm a literature philistine and tend to only read books after they've been made into movies) but this certainly looks like an interesting pitch. It's certainly a different direction from Lord Of The Rings and King Kong and I'll be interested to see how Weta are put to good use here - the scenes of 'heaven' look fantastic.

This strikes me as being an odd mix of supernatural fairytale and police procedural, sort of like if Ghost did dirty sex with Zodiac. There's a poster quote for you.
